Behold, fall on a plate! These gluten-free Apple Protein Pancakes are going to be on your breakfast table for the entire fall season. Mark my words. They are made with oats, cottage cheese, eggs, and apples! You would never guess they don’t have any flour in them! They’re 106 calories each and have 7 grams protein each.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 5 egg whites
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats, gluten-free if desired
  • 1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 Macintosh apple, peeled and grated or very finely diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • cooking spray, avocado oil or coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Combine egg whites, eggs, oats, cottage cheese, applesauce cinnamon, vanilla and nutmeg in a blender and blend until completely creamy and smooth, about 1 minute on high. Add shredded apple and baking soda and pulse to combine.
  2. Heat a large griddle or skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Coat with cooking spray or brush lightly with avocado oil or coconut oil. Ladle ¼ cups-full of the batter onto hot griddle (it will spread out to 4-inch circles.) Let cook, undisturbed until browned on the bottom and the edges are slightly dry, 2 to 4 minutes. Carefully flip pancakes with a spatula and let cook on the other side until the center is cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Cook the remaining batter in batches, reducing heat as necessary to prevent too much browning. Serve hot.

Notes

Leftovers

Keep covered in the refrigerator up to three days. Reheat in the microwave about 20 seconds per pancake.

To Freeze

Freeze cooked pancakes on a baking sheet until firm. Transfer to a re-sealable bag and freeze up to three weeks. To defrost and heat place two pancakes side-by-side on a microwave-safe plate and microwave until hot, about 45 minutes. Stack and drizzle with syrup if desired to serve.
